False breasts in a boxBosom buddies help determine implant size

The tricky thing about breast implants is deciding upon the right size, wouldn't you say?  The traditional method of determining just how much your cup size should runneth over is to "try them on" during consultations with your cosmetic surgeon.

Of course, we're not the first to think of this. Click here for more on the story.

He founded his beauty company in 1959 as a mail order business, selling products that delivered "beauty from plants."   You might say he was ahead of his time.
